We arrived after sunset, which made it slightly more difficult to find the entrance, which is right next to a store that sells just Quebecois locally made items. Thankfully there is parking provided across the street, but it is open air so don't leave anything valuable in your car. We didn't have any issues though since the neighborhood seems to be pretty quiet, like most of the city itself.
Up a flight of stairs, the B&B is spacious and homey, and Robert is always there to oversee things. Robert, the proprietor, is one of the best aspects of staying here. He is such a sweet older man, and his family has lived there since the 1700s, about 4-5 generations of quebecois, and he has run the place for almost 15 years. He used to be an English teacher for French Canadiens, and he is a wonderful source of history and local information, and has great recommendations on sites to visit both in the city and especially outside of it (which we sadly couldn't take advantage of).
The kitchen is huge and beautifully sunlit in the morning, with a patio for nice weather. Rooms are large, with a comfortable queen size bed, clean sheets, and towels that are adorably twisted into the shape of kissing swans when you arrive. Rooms are quite large with a lot of space, and each has a tv for personal use. Free wifi is available if you need it. The kitchen itself is very modern, and Robert is happy to let you put a few things in the fridge if need be.
The breakfast is great - they will cook you your breakfast as you like it, eggs fried/scrambled/poached with ham, fresh fruit, and your choice of toast, or opt for french toast with fantastic local maple syrup (of course!), fresh orange juice, and coffee or tea (tea is always available, as are little tins of cookies and chocolates on the side table). The shared bathroom is large and the shower quite comfortable; we had no issue sharing it with the other guests. The area is so quiet, you will sleep very well, and the location is just a short walk to one of the main streets and the heart of Quebec City.
